Overview

The Universe is in the eye of the beholder. Some believe in the prosperity of life and encourage all to live and let live, but others, the ones with that deadly twinkle in their eyes, believe in the division of life. Those are the ones who break souls.
Deevo is their King. He breathes to set the galaxies on fire and watch them burn. Disconnecting all parts of the Universe is his purpose, and he will twist your mind for as long as it takes to get what he wants.
And he wants the Rosh, the most powerful spaceship known. He would have it in a heartbeat too-if the captain's sidekick wasn't a dead assassin. But once Deevo secures control, Voc and his indestructible body will be his to reap as well.
Except that he isn't the only one who wants Voc. Dead assassin or not, Voc rescued Ava from a life destined for sexual slavery and took her aboard the Rosh, saving both her and Bob-an easy going computer tech with absolutely no idea how to captain the Universe's most powerful spacecraft. They quickly realized, however, that Voc's real mission was far from rescuing strangers as he blew up the Center Space station and destroyed the Master of the Universe.
Ava had no idea what the Master's death would trigger. Nor was she prepared. Her mind in ruins, all she had to cling to was Voc's dark eyes while the very existence of the Universe came to pass.
But Voc is dead. Beyond touch, and beyond the want for it.
Bob warned her not to fall. He could see the pain coming a mile away. Whether Deevo messed with Voc's mind or not, he still isn't alive. If he was, they would have all been dead a long time ago. And now they needed his protection more than ever if they have any chance preventing Deevo from burning the galaxies to a crisp.

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite It was supposed to be a fun night out dancing with her friend. Ava did not expect to be abducted and taken aboard the Center Space station to be a ‘kitten’ – a sex slave. Voc, a deadly assassin, rescued her and together with Bob the computer tech, they took the Rosh, a powerful spacecraft, and escaped. Ava’s life was never the same again and her journey was just about to begin. The Prince of Death is the first installment of Into the Darkness sci-fi series by Teresa Marie Manning. The action started right from the prologue. I had to reread the beginning chapters, particularly chapter one and two, to grasp Voc’s background, his relationship with the Master, and Deevo’s cryptic message to the assassin. Even after finishing the book, I am not sure if I understand Voc as well as I had hoped. There is something complex about him so I decided to just accept his enigmatic personality as it is. I sympathize with Ava as the ‘kitten’ mind altering process did have some impact on her senses. I feel that she did lose some parts of her identity that made her – unwillingly, if I may say – become infatuated with Voc. On the other hand, Bob is a welcome comic relief, as I always prefer a degree of humor in any stories that I read. That said, characterization is good, coupled with well-written dialogue. Action is plentiful, which no doubt would make some readers breathless just reading about them. All in all, a great debut for a series.
